Dyslipidemia is a major health problem in india  and an important modifiable cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factor. This study aimed to describe the prevalence of dyslipidemia  among adults in southern rajasthan. A cross-sectional analyses done on 100 healthy volunteers aged >18 years visiting GMCH. Blood samples were collected to determine TC, TG, LDL-C, HDL-C, VLDL-C levels. Dyslipidemia was observed either alone or in combination. The most common dyslipidemia was low HDL-C in 42% in subjects. Which is independant risk factor for CAD. Thus, dyslipidemia should be identified early, promtoly and treated.
